Saxophones Adolphe Sax
Keyed bugles were invented in England in the early 19th century, with a patent for one design, the Royal Kent bugle, taken out by Joseph Halliday in 1811.
This bugle was highly popular and widely in use until c. 1850
This variant of the bugle fell out of use with the invention of the valved cornet.
Modern instruments classified as bugles are often valved.
